Thank you for attending the 33rd Creating Change Conference

January 28-31, 2021

For 33 years, the National LGBTQ Task Force has brought you Creating Change, the largest LGBTQ activist conference in the country. Every year, thousands of people from across the country come together to learn, connect, and resist. At Creating Change we sharpen our minds with skills and knowledge, fill our hearts with love and joy, and deepen our commitment to freedom, justice and equity for all LGBTQ people. Creating Change 2021 was no different, with one big exception: Creating Change 2021 was our first ever virtual conference.
